Cindy from Skeem Saam has had the same facial expressions since she joined the show. You can never tell if she’s sad, happy or angry. Then there’s the lip thing she does and then her annoying hand gestures.
Fans of the show have put up with her terrible mannerisms for years but can’t keep quiet any longer. She’s been trending since the beginning of this month as the spotlight is back on her and her business partner; Lehasa Maphosa.
@kulanicool tweeted: “This lady can’t act” (followed by her image) and Skeem Saam viewers flooded his post.
She’s forever overreacting and overdramatizing everything and screaming. She makes one turns off the TV or change channels when she screams “Lehasa Maphosa” like she’s talking to her naughty step-child. She makes the show look bad. It’s 2020 and her style of acting is outdated.
She even makes her business partner; Lehasa Maphosa look bad. You get annoyed of their relationship and hate both of them.

It’s only when Lehasa is with other characters such as; Lelo Mthiyane or Marothi that you realise how great Lehasa is. Cindy gives the restaurant a terrible mood.
We’ve never seen her happy either, even when things are going good. Even if she’s been happy, we don’t remember her laugh or smile because they’re overshadowed by her cringing acting.
Perhaps we’ll witness a better Cindy when her ex-boyfriend or current boyfriend; Professor Sakhile come back to the show. Perhaps he’ll cheer her up and whisper some acting tips in her ear.
Aren’t people who make a lot of supposed to be happier, sometimes? She’s running a publishing house and owns half of Café Rovuwa. Perhaps Sakhile will impregnate her and she’ll disappear from the show for a while; go on maternity leave.
